The Huesca is doing a disastrous campaign in La Liga, achieved only 1 victory, in its premiere, and since then accumulated 9 losses and 4 draws, urgently needing to recover, because it is already 7 points behind Villarreal, the first team out of the Descent zone. The local team presents very serious problems, both in the offensive and defensive sector, as they scored only 12 goals, being the third worst attack of the competition, and suffered 29, having the weakest defense, being a team that reaches little to attack and still leaves many spaces in its defense. The Huesca has the worst use of the championship as a local team, is the only one that has not yet won and has the worst attack, with only 4 goals in 6 games, evidencing the enormous difficulty of acting, even with the support of their fans, and that his staff has a low technical level. For the game against Real Madrid, coach Francisco will not be able to count on the Akapo side, due to injury.
After 7 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, the away team is currently in the 5 th position, with 23 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Eibar, by (3-0).

In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 51 of the last 62 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 14 matches in this competition, they have only 1 comeback in the 7 matches they have conceded the first goal.
Real Madrid is recovering from a terrible start in the Spanish league, has won 3 of its last 4 games and is looking for another 3 points to try to decrease the difference for the leader and biggest rival, Barcelona. The team needs to improve offensively, since it has only the fifth best attack of the competition, with 22 goals scored, but the big problem is its defense, which has failed much more than usual, suffered 19 goals and is the sixth worse, so much that he suffered at least 2 goals in 4 of the last 6 rounds. Real Madrid has encountered enormous difficulties as a visitor, winning only 1 of the last 5 games played and it should be noted that it has the second worst defense in this condition, with 16 goals suffered in 7 games, a performance well below what was expected by the quality of its players. For the match with Huesca, coach Santiago Solari will still be without Casemiro and midfielder Toni Kroos, both due to injury, as well as doubting striker Gareth Bale.
